A wonderful sound document from 1970. The recording has a fantastic *feel* to it, and captures the band playing in top form.

Subject: what a joy
Got a little more clarification by looking at the set list for 7.10.70 which makes a strong argument for the confusing set that I posted belonging to that date but there's definitely arguments on both sides....
After finally listening to all of 7/10/70 it's very clear that this show is wrongly identified. At the very end there's a comment on a different version of this tape where the some recording it says clear as day that the show is from the Fillmore. There's some debate still about it being 7:10 or 7:9 because somebody who attended the show said it couldn't be 7:10 cuz they played morning dew... That is it, I've moved on
Subject: Great Recording w\Garcia emphasis in mix
The beauty of these recordings is how well they were mixed or recorded and balancing the sounds of Jerry's pedal steel and the sweet vocals of this NRPS are upfront and not muddy. Given that Jerry claimed the pedal and lap steel guitars were the hardest instruments he played and that he only got one if it was sent to him in tune, he's a pretty quick study.
By the way the only onstage pedal steel jerry played after the NRPS was during their tour as back-up for Dylan back in the mid-80's. This was only for at most one song each show. So enjoy this treat and how fortunate it is available to anyone with the ability to download. Now if only a sbd or aud. recording of Jerry playing The Wheel on steel would be available...!?!
Subject: and i like these guys
why are we trying to explain recording techniques.??...go listen to some 66 dead sbds and tell me who recorded them....same people---this is what we are doing here
check out the 4 28 71
new riders rule!
Subject: incredible sound considering age and source...
(geez- it makes me feel cranky and old and i'm only 36! wow...)
there is a new band called Beachwood Sparks who are imitating this sort of sound-- and it inspired me to go back and listen to NRPS-- and i'm glad i did!!
and as reviwers have previously stated-- with ol' Jer on pedal steel- how can you go wrong??
i'm giving this 5 stars just to offset the chumps that complain about the sound...
Subject: Mac Users Might Try Audion3 w/ Kareoke Vocal Filter
a Sony TC124 deck."!?! HS Basketball "Arena" Sound.
Karaoke "On" w/ the Macintosh Application "Audion 3" works well w/ this (Go to: Edit Preferences->Effects->Karaoke). Overdriven
vocals w/ too much stage bleed to the vocal mic, so
surprisingly, the "Karaoke" Vocals filter helped a lot w/ the shareware
Audion3 for Mac! Sounds, at times, like Live Dylan...
This Page has confirmed to me, it's also Jerry Garcia at this Performance. Obviously, since it is right around the time of
recording Tracks for, CSN "Teach Your Children" and "Workingman's Dead...??? Where else are you gonna get this??? FIVE STARS!!!
Subject: Nothing is like Jerry on the Pedal Steel
I wish Dirty Business here was a little slower, but I cannot get enough of NRPS. They have always been my 2nd favorite band.
Wish the sound was a little better but I am really greatful to see this here. It brings back the memories for sure!
It really deserves a three, but I cannot for personal reasons.
Subject: Great Venue, Great Recording.
I don't think there are any other versions of "Live And Let Live" and "If You Hear Me When I'm Leavin'".
The whole band sounds great.
Give it a shot. It's cool hearing the crowd and the occasional "Far Out Man" from some buzzing head.
Subject: Classic New Riders
Subject: AUD quality fantastic for 1970
